Forty-two men and women aged 70 to 79 years were studied to assess the effects of 6 months of endurance or resistance training and subsequent cessation of training on glucose tolerance, plasma insulin responses, serum triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and plasma dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) levels. The endurance training group (n = 16) exercised at 75% to 85% heart rate reserve for 35 to 45 minutes three times per week; the resistance training group (n = 17) completed one set of eight to 12… CONTINUE READING
